This is an anthology of eerie stories aimed at younger readers. The two stories in the fairy tale vein, Madame d’Aulnoy’s “The Yellow Dwarf” and Mrs. Gaskell’s “Curious If True,” seem misplaced in this collection.

Stories by Andre Norton, Doris Lessing, Dorothy Sayers, Lady Wilde, Lady Gregory and other literary luminaries. The editors provide an introduction to each story. I read this many years ago, and remember liking it—and now I want to read it again!

Great read! This is exactly what the title says it is. Great narrative, great pace, great information. The author obviously knows what he's talking about and takes it a step further by making it enjoyable. Loved the illustrations as well. Just wish they were in color. Would definitely recommend as a casual read to anyone interested.

This is a nice little collection of supernatural short stories including some by some classic authors such as Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and H. G. Wells.
